Driving in the area: There are many excellent roads in this part of Northern France – and not all of them are flat and straight. You can wind your way through some of the valleys, stop off to admire the view, visit an abbey or one of the many WW1 sites – or simply have something to eat and drink. We will be happy to help with your itinerary. Check out What to see & do for some ideas.
